If you haven't yet scheduled a consultation, use our Contact Us form to request one now, or call our office to set up your appointment. Your Long Island plastic surgeon will review your medical history and perform a physical examination of the areas you wish to have treated. During the exam, he or she may evaluate your skin elasticity, muscle tone, and volume of fat or tissue to determine a proper course of action for your procedure. No 2 cosmetic surgeries are ever the same, and the initial consultation will help your doctor as much as it will help you.
You will also be asked questions about your lifestyle, as well as any medications, supplements, or drugs you might be taking. It's vitally important to answer these questions truthfully, as your answers may affect the process or outcome of your procedure. Any information you share with our doctors and staff is kept completely confidential.
The surgeon will also provide a detailed overview of your specific procedure, including incision sites, likely outcome, and important preoperative and postoperative instructions. If it is practical for you, our doctors encourage you to bring along a spouse, friend, or other trusted loved one to provide support during your consultation.
After your consultation, a patient coordinator will meet with you to discuss your insurance coverage (if applicable) and explain payment and financing options. If you're ready, you may also schedule your surgery at this time. The doctors and staff at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery understand that plastic surgery can be a big decision and will never pressure or rush you to move forward with a procedure.
